Play With Local Kittens From Your Computer, Like A Kind-Hearted Robot
The Humane Society of Dallas has a cool, new gadget installed in its catitentiary. It puts us one step closer to existing in the Philip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? And you know what? I ain't mad about it.
Just click this link and you'll go to a magical place. There, you'll control three different dangly cat toys from a panel of toggle buttons on your screen. Next, move the live-feed camera around and see if your offer has produced any furry takers. It likely will not, considering two of the toys seem remarkably over-calibrated. They fling around terrifyingly and seem better suited for lion training exercises than domesticated kitten playtime. Still, it's a pretty great work break.
